What do I do with past versions of SmartSDR?

Version 3.7.3 is out now, but I'll wait to update until I'm sure what to do. Do I delete (uninstall) the previous versions or leave them alone. Also the same for desktop icons. I have no plans to ever use them again but what is recommended? I thought maybe the new version would delete older versions but they don't. Thanks for any help anyone can give. Ken. K5GI

    Once I'm satisfied that the new version is working OK, I uninstall the old version using Control Panel. I leave the "FlexVSP" alone. I also keep a copy of the previous version's installer just in case.

    Hi Ken, I just remove the old shortcuts from my desktop so I don't accidentally invoke them. Otherwise, I leave everything alone.

    I meant to also note that the uninstall process (thru Control Panel) took away the old shortcuts, too.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
